oc A. E. RICHARDS. THE UNION.
The following lines by Longfellow, from his
forthcoming volume of poems, is quite appro
priate at this time :
Thou, too, sail on, O ship of State!
Sail on, O Union, strong and great!
Humanity, with all its fears,
With all the hopes of future years,
Is hanging breathless on thy fate!
We know what master laid thy keel,
What workmen wrought thy ribs of steel,
Who made each mast, each sail, each rope,
What anvils rang, what hammers beat,
In what, a forge and what a heat,
Were shaped the anchors of thy hope!
Fear not each sudden sound and shock,
'Tis of the wave and not the rock;
Tis but the flapping of the sail,
And not a rent made by the gale!
In spite of rock and tempest's roar,
In spite of false lights on the shore,
Sail on, nor fear to breast the sea!
Our hearts, our hopes, are all with thee:
Our hearts, our hopes, our prayers, tears,
Are all with thee—are all with thee!

NEW VOLUME COMMENCING WITH JULY.
This splendid Magazine cumc into the hands of tiie pre*
Bent proprietors after the publication of the December num
ber of 1848, with a lint of and such has been ita popu
larity, that the list has already increased to upwards of
000 monthly. No Magazine has ever been established that
has increased in its circulation so much in so short a time.—
The proprietors, from the liberal support extended to them,
have made arrangements with artists aud contributors, both
American and European, that will truly make the Magazine

cellent paper styled it, "The. Blackwood, of America y The
press throughout the country huve spoken of it in the high
est praise. We only have space this month for the follow
ing notices, but have thousands of "the same sort left."
"This is, beyond all comparison, the most brilliant of the
three-dollar Magazines. The vigor and ability displayed
in this new Magazine, will surely give it the largest circular
tion in the United States, unless 'Graham' and 4 Godey' pay
more attention to th 3 quality of both their literary contents
and their embellisliUl -nts .-—NeaVs Saturday Gazette.
"It contains more and better engravings than any othet
Magazine, and is filled with reading matter of the very besr
kind. We have repeatedly recommended it to those ol our
readers who wish to subscribe to an able and interesting pe
riodical, as the very best one published."— Free Democrat.
"It is really a gem. By the way, if Graham and Godey
are not on the look-out, Sartain will beat them entirely from
the track."-~PA«»tz Ledger. m
"Sartain has already established his Magazine in the fron
rank of American literature and art, and if he only doet
half as well in future as he has done thus far, he will be able
to outvie all bis competitors."— Reading Gazette.
"This Magazine is one of the best specimens of literary
taste and art that we have ever seen in the Magazine line.
